Here’s a terrible single frame picture of Saturn taken in very high (74%) humidity, but it looks like I’ve captured four moons. The image was taken through my Seven close-coupled to my iPhone 12 Pro.

Humidity is a killer, no doubt about it RMay. A little less of that here in Arizona where my wife and I spend part of the year. Back in Philadelphia, PA., I know about humidity into the 70s. Thanks for posting. I appreciate the 'rawness' of the shot where you didn't try and post-process the fuzziness out of it. No mistaking Saturn, that's for sure!

Here’s a Saturn moon map showing their placement last night; it appears that I may have captured three of them… not sure.
